Default Chelsea/United XI

The BBC has a thing asking you to pick the best side from both squads. Mine came out like this, completely split down the middle:

Wouldn't argue too much with that. Probably select Giggsy ahead of Robben. Only real difference for me would be at centre back - Vidic/Terry are the similar strong defender. Think either with Rio/Carvalho would be better. Toss of a coin for both positions. If you follow.

Be fair, the Ashley Cole of Arsenal would be in that squad. It's Chelsea thats fucked him up, he doesn't get the opportunity to get down the wing anymore. And anyone would admit he kept Ronnie in his back pocket at Old Trafford.

so chelsea have fucked him up by not letting him get up the wing.
ok, but isnt he a defender ???
defending is the worst area of his game.
hes shit. he cant tackle, he cant pass, he gets out muscled and cries for free kicks all the time. hes very erratic and panics (remember essiens own goal where cole kicked it against him with no one around him )

chelseas worst defender. nft

I'm sorry but thats bollocks. Personality wise, yes, he is a cock, but he is one of the best left backs in the game IMO.

Spot on.

And although people say he usually gets the better of Ronaldo, Ronnie actually stops Cole playing the best part of his game which is getting forwards.

Most overrated defender in the country.


BTW, my combined team only had Cech, Essien and Drogba from the rents.

Are we going for a team that would blend or just the best 11 players?

If it's the best 11 then you must have Rio in there. Vidic or Carvalho over Rio? I think not.

Best 11 players

Cech

Neville
Rio
Terry
Cole

Ronaldo
Essien
Scholes
Giggs

Drogba
Rooney


Better balance/blend 11

Cech

Neville
Rio
Vidic
Cole

Ronaldo
Essien
Scholes
Robben

Rooney
Drogba



Sorted. Sorry 'Lamps'.
